Jazz player Rahsaan Roland Kirk spent his life defying and exceeding physical limitations: born blind, he grew into a prolific artist (releasing nearly 30 studio albums under his own name in 20 years) and a supernatural musical talent. He incorporated everything from kazoos to cuckoo clocks, and he often appeared onstage playing nearly a dozen instruments—at times he would play three saxophones simultaneously. Towards the end of his life Kirk was mostly paralyzed by a stroke, yet he managed to learn how to play the saxophone one-handed before dying at 39 of a second stroke. Documentary maker Adam Kahan has dug up a ton of archival footage (including numerous performances and home videos) for this sensitive and compelling documentary (2013); the animated interludes are distracting, but by emphasizing live performance and audio recordings over interviews, Kahan lets Kirk’s talent speak for itself.
